It's a shame that as a culture, we have devolved in some respects. This is a good example. A healthy body is not valued, when it should be valued at the top. Sitting at home and memorizing materials (rote learing hell) has contributed greatly to very unhealthy children. It is at the point where parents are actually trying to get them out of physical activites, even school PE. Gymnastics and Pankration would be ideal for children to build healthy bodies. The benefits it would produce for other sports is beyond important. Healthy active athletes tend to succeed in school more than students who do not participate and/or compete. That is more than enpugh evidence for parents to help their children. I completely agree. It’s a shame that as a culture, we have devolved in some respects. This is a good example.
